Crunden, John

Crunden, John (c.1741–1835). English architect. He is known for his pattern-books, one of which, Convenient and Ornamental Architecture, consisting of Original Designs (from) the Farm House … to the Most Grand and Magnificent Villa (1767), went into seven later editions, and was the most successful of its type, containing designs for a range of Palladianesque buildings. He collaborated with J. H. Morris to produce The Carpenter's Companion … for… Chinese Railing and Gates (1765), and also designed in the Gothick style, including a garden-pavilion illustrated in Krafft's Plans des plus beaux jardins pittoresques (1809). His architectural works are not numerous, but include Boodle's Club, St. James's Street, London (1775–6), which is influenced by the work of Robert Adam. His own pattern-books were influential, notably in America.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
